    No way! People should get a life, and buy EITHER a laptop (or minilaptop), OR an iPod Touch/iPhone

    3,000,000/80 = 37,500.

    Wow. If you take an average iPad that costs around £500 then times it by 3 million you get 150 million! Wow. That's a lot of money! Steve Jobs must be a multi-millionaire!

    Let's say the cost to make one is $240.
    Forget the shipping, paying people, and yadda-yadda. Just the parts.

    3,000,000 * 260 (profit from 16GB WiFi) = $780,000,000

    Keep in mind, every iPad sold wasn't the 16GB -- the cheapest model.
    There's still the 32GB and 64GB. And 3G versions.

    Like I said, that's ignoring the other costs.
    But the thought of it is still woah-ish.

    ...minus production costs and other expenses...

    iPad is still certainly a boon for Apple, but it's not as simple as that.
